SNMA Region 7 Conference
Sit-ins and Stethoscopes: The Physician’s Role(s) in Pursuing Health Care Equity Through Advocacy
The SNMA is the nation’s oldest student-run organization that addresses the needs and concerns of medical and premedical minority students and the health of minority communities. Membership in the SNMA includes over 5,000 medical students, pre-medical students and physicians dedicated to eliminating disparities in health and medicine.
Every year our regional conference draws over a hundred students from all over the Northeast United States, making it our largest event of the year. This event promises to be a great opportunity to inspire the lives of many minority pre-medical and medical students. Workshops, panel discussions and hands-on activities will engage students in a wide range of subjects regarding Health Care Policy, Advocacy, and Disparity. Regardless of the future field of interest, we hope to show them the diverse ways in which a career in medicine can be used as a force for health care equity.
Region VII is comprised of the following Medical Schools: Boston University, Brown University, Dartmouth University, Harvard Medical School, Tufts University, University of Connecticut, University of Massachusetts, University of Vermont, University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine, Yale School of Medicine and the Frank H Netter School of Medicine.
